The Value of Potential

Every human deserves the right to live, even in an imperfect world.

CatholicVote has some serious talent. I loved their election video and I love this new “life” video, using  Obama as an example of the good that can come of life….the very man who would sign FOCA, into legislation is, himself, a wonder of potential fulfilled.

Thanks Pearl Diver, for sending this to me.

    It’s a short and powerful video. Burn the “Abortion On Demand” act. FOCA

    all life has value. And we should value THAT.

    You know, I object to the title of it, it’s deceptive. It should be the AOD.

    Can you really even put a value on potential? We put so much effort into extending life and protecting life, saving life…. look at all the funds put into health research! It is a crying shame that this kind of concern is not extended to the very most vulnerable of our numbers.

    My skin cells have potential to be life too. Shall we pass a law banning the destruction of skin cells?

    There is a point where some cells have more certain potential than others. I don’t think anyone has the concern that every ovary egg or sperm cell need be conserved, but once put together, they have a greater potential and value. The further along in the development of that child, the more certain the potential becomes. Wouldn’t you agree?

    A child in the womb does not have the potential to be a child because it already is. Dead skin cells are dead and have already accomplished what they were supposed to do.

    I meant live and thriving skin cells. In the near future, one can just extract the DNA and clone it, alive or not.

    I mostly agree with your statement, Beetle. I just know plenty of children who had tons of potential to be successes, and then they entered high school and overdosed on drugs constantly. It happens as a child develops.
